Coughton Court Walks

2 miles (4 km)

Explore the beautiful gardens of the Tudor Coughton Court, before a lovely waterside stroll along the River Arden on this walking route in Warwickshire. The grounds include the walled garden, lake, knot garden, vegetable garden, orchard and bog garden. You can then continue through the meadow and the pretty bluebell wood before joining the Arden Way towards Spernall. You then return to the house with a waterside stretch along the River Arden.
The Tudor house has been home to the Throckmorton family for 600 years. It has a place in English history for its role in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 as some of the conspirators rode directly back there after it failed.
Coughton Court is located near Redditch and Stratford Upon Avon.
